Just Found A *new* Xenon

How is this even possible in 2010? I guess the real question is... Is this USEFUL in any way? It's got a manufacture date of 2006-07-02

LOL. Seriously, get it JTAGed or sell it to someone who wants to JTAG it. It's worth more than an updated jasper.

Special ones are the ones like the one I got given to Jtag, never been used in three years 2xxx dash and never repaired 2006 01 Xenon.

I don't think it's worth more than a current jasper, but it's worth more than a current xenon for sure.
Aren't new Arcade systems like $140 now? I wouldn't sell a jtagable, never RROD'd bare Xenon console for under $160.
The KV alone is worth $60-70
But this one doesn't look new, check the memory flap and looks like there's a sticker on top.

^^^ As you can see it has a relatively old dash, so definitely JTAG season I feel
^^^ Opened it up as the sticker was void, but inside is 100% stock. Weird.
^^^ To preserve it's longevity I fitted the newest heatsinks using Arctic Silver 5 and kept the x-clamps. IMO they do their job well, so why change them. Even MS still uses them still.
I also added two small heatsinks to the ANA and South Bridge chips. Reassembled, powered up, played Burnout Revenge for 3 hours and it's all good.
Anything else I should do to keep this thing working for all eternity?

I also run a PC & Laptop spare parts business, so I'm sure I can hook you up especially if you need Toshiba parts... I've got 170 modems that need shifting

you should put the old cpu heatsink back on. xenons get to hot for the new ones.

have em all 12v...
turn up your sound... or else its gunna wail like a jet engine
works like a charm
ur might have to **cough** reshape the gpu heatsink...
or even do the shrouds.. and middle divider.... 12V it all and put like a 70mm in the side of the case right above the the GPU heatsink extension good to get some cool air in there.. for both the GPU and CPU

Can anyone else confirm this? It looks to me like a much beefier heatsink, but then again the older one does have the pipe.
The older one is copper. Copper>aluminum.
